As a result of Circuit Breaker measures due to Covid-19, a friend who recently graduated from polytechnic, told me that her new recruiter role, has been put on hold till end May.

Similarly, internship opportunities have also vanished. 🎒 Disney abruptly told students currently interning at its parks in Anaheim and Florida to move out and gave them just one week to do so.

However not every industry faces this issue.
πŸ€– Google announced they would move summer internship programs online rather than cancel them completely.

Industries deemed as Essential Services will have the advantage as they will be tagged as Recession Proof.

How about in Singapore? Let’s face it, any internship opportunities this year is as good as zero.

So, stop whining, bite the bullet and move on.

What can you do?

πŸ” FIND THE RECESSION PROOF INDUSTRIES

The financial services sector is still poised to accept internships and definitely full time jobs.

Talents will continuously be headhunted here because they are regarded as the Future of Us.

But the evolving nature of the Covid-19 cases will mean that any interns must be prepared for sudden changes should the situation escalates.

As of now, my agency’s current on job experiential training has evolved. Should you be open minded and want to know more, let me know.

πŸ’» CURRENTLY LIMITED BUT AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITIES IN STEM CAREERS

These are careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) sector.

In the foreseeable future, demand for agricultural science will pick up too, should the curriculum for local diploma and degree graduates be developed.

But for now, if you have any skills in COMPUTER AND APP CODING, a friend of mine is looking out for University and Polytechnic interns to help his small but growing Medical TeleHealth Team. It has seen explosive 🧨 demand in its services since late last year.

πŸ‘‰ PM me and I will connect you both.

But only limited to 2 interns. Better hurry.

πŸ“ In summary, will this shrinking internship and job market make hires even stricter?

No doubt.

The assessors will become more picky and the hiring process more stringent. So you’d better shape up, or ship out.

Time to start building your ark. The light drizzle has changed to a heavy downpour.
